- Belle Epicurean patisserie has closed inside the Fairmont Olympic Hotel downtown but there’s no cause for alarm: The French-inspired bakery-cafe is moving to a new location at 4th and Madison (925 4th Ave.). The new spot, scheduled to open March 15, is twice the size of the original and will serve a weekend Champagne brunch.
- Ballard fine-dining restaurant Copine now has a bar menu for anyone looking to take things a little more casual than in the upscale dining room. The options, including a smoked sturgeon spread with Parmesan crackers, rosemary-scented fried chicken, and wagyu beef tartare, are inspired by chef-owner Shaun McCrain and general manager Jill Kinney’s Paris travels, and are available Tuesday through Thursday at the bar only.
- Groceries from Whole Foods are available via Amazon’s Prime Now delivery. Prime members in Virginia Beach, Cincinnati, Dallas, and Whole Foods’ hometown of Austin can order from some of the grocer’s best selling products for one- or two-hour delivery via the Prime Now site or the Prime Now mobile app.
- The trailer for David Chang’s new Netflix show Ugly Delicious includes a brief cameo by renowned Seattle chef Edouardo Jordan (Junebaby, Salare) at the 0:26 mark. All eight episodes of Ugly Delicious will be available worldwide on Netflix on February 23.
- Beijing-born Chinese fine-dining restaurant Black Rooster is opening its first international outpost in Renton’s waterfront Southport development in September. It will seat 300 people, host Chinese celebrity chefs throughout the year, and feature local and organic ingredients in dishes like Chinese-style baked breads, organic tofu made in-house, dumplings, and steamed black chicken soup.
